Sporting vs PSV prediction
Sporting didn't have many problems winning over Rosenborg on the road last time out in Europa League, getting that three-pointer quite easy thanks to goals from Coates and Fernandes in the first halftime.
They looked simply as a much sharper side and didn't need a lot of the ball possession to create dangerous moments.
Two three-pointers over Norwegians give them the leading position now, however, nothing is finished for them and the side needs to get the victory here too, in order to clinch the ticket for the knockout phase.
The Portuguese side misses offensive midfielder Cabral (1/0) and central defender Coates (10/2), plus a couple of long-term absentees.
PSV opened the Europa League bid with two victories, however soon the problems came and lack of good form is very obvious in the Eredivisie as well.
Most recently, they got crushed away to LASK conceding four goals in the second halftime as their game plan completely fall apart.
After a run of six matches without victory in all competitions, they finally got back to positive ways with a 2:1 victory at home over Heerenveen last weekend.
The team is now already eleven points behind the leaders from Ajax and it's difficult to say whether Europa League comes as a priority at such a difficult situation.
Forward Lammers is more of a long-term absentee for the Dutch side and anyway didn't perform so far in the season in Eredivisie nor Europa League.
Sporting seems to be in a much better moment now and it's hardly anyone can argue about it. With the help of their own fans, they should be able to overpower the Dutches.
The visitors are simply not impressive in any aspect of the game and should have really difficult time staying competitive, while the odds look as juicy as possible.
